Ruben Amaro: ‘I still think we’re the best team in baseball’

Despite losing in five games to the St. Louis Cardinals in the NLDS, the Phillies still finished with the best record in baseball with 102 wins. And some — including GM Ruben Amaro, Jr. — believe they are still the best team in the majors.

Amaro appeared on 94.1 WIP’s mid-day show, with Michael Barkann and Ike Reese, and admitted that he’s been unable to watch the World Series. Pay attention to the last sentence.

“I can’t watch it either. I do not watch,” Amaro told the radio station. “I watched a little bit of the game yesterday because it was a nice performance by the kid [Derek Holland]. I bet you I’ve watched maybe 12 innings. Because I still think we’re the best team in baseball.”

Amaro talked about a range of topics, including Jimmy Rollins‘ future and Boston’s epic, alcohol-induced collapse. For a good summary, check out
